Ottawa, Canada's capital city, serves as a cultural and historical playground all year long. From its rich museums to its green parks, the city never stops innovating.

Stroll, bike, or skate along Rideau Canal depending on the season! Enjoy the views from Major's Hill Park and take in Ottawa's natural beauty.
Ottawa's geographical placement along the Ottawa River between Quebec and Onatario make it a unique melting pot of cultures. Although French-speaking Canadians are outnumbered by their English-speaking counterparts, they represent a significant percentage of the population. Ottawa's immigrant communities are also growing, which provides rich, multicultural neighborhoods and experiences. The capital was first home to the Algonquian-speaking people from the First Nations. The Canadian Museum of History tells the story of history of Ottawa's changing landscape, but the vibrancy is felt and seen all throughout the city.
